Landmarks et al

"The ability to be patient is rare and praiseworthy for it means a player is willing to let a moment pass aware that he can own the next."

My favorite cricket journalist - Harsha Bhogle on my favorite cricketer, Rahul Dravid on my favorite (and IMO under-rated) virtue here.

India's main man hits a landmark 100 tests. Cricinfo has a good section on him.

On a personal note:

The 17th of March is a defining day in yours truly's life. It redefined the way people look at me, and this embarrasses, infuriates and pleases me in equal measures. The 'pleases' part has gone down in recent years as this mortal tries to find something that he really wants to go on his epitaph.

Cracking GRE ??? :)
even if thats not it, it will surely go on ur epitaph..;-)
you patiently waited preparing for it, knowing that you'll own the next moment for a long time :)

Ajay said...

Yep, you got it. :-)

*Sigh* - In the big scheme of things, does that even matter? There's more to life than grades, scores, performance reviews and bonuses.

Well,the philospher in me wants to say NO but the truth is , it does matter! Everything you do in life, is a reflection of who you are and what you want to be !! Your life matters and the big scheme of things is YOU --- so all this counts !!!
You can't change the world, but you can inspire a few!
In every little way , strive to have an impact on someone -- hopefully for the better :)

GRE was a great accomplishment and got you where you are today...and we are proud of you!!!
